Maile Metalwala, after being reunited with her dad Solomon Metalwala on Friday.

After nearly a year, 4-year-old Maile Metalwala has at last been reunited with her dad, Solomon Metalwala. Maile was kept from Solomon by a combination of a restraining order based on discredited domestic violence charges and the Washington Department of Social and Health Services, who seized Maile away from her unfit mother six weeks ago and put her in foster care.

Fathers and Families’ highly-publicized Campaign to Reunite Solomon Metalwala with His Daughter Maile sought to push WA DSHS and King County Superior Court to reunite Maile and Solomon as soon as possible. We thank all of our members and supporters who wrote and/or called the relevant authorities. Special thanks goes to Clay Terry, Esq., Solomon’s attorney, for his determined work towards reuniting Maile with Solomon.

As Fathers and Families members and supporters are painfully aware, many children will be denied their fathers this holiday season. Thanks in part to your efforts, Maile will not be one of them.
